Erdem to get eMOTIONal at the V&A

The Victoria & Albert Museum is hosting their next Fashion in Motion event on December 11th.

The star of the show? None other than Montreal’s very own, Erdem Moralioglu.

“I am thrilled and honoured to be showing at the V & A. Since my student days is has been one of my favourite museums and I even showed my very first collection here.”          – Erdem Moralioglu

Fashion in Motion is a series of live catwalk events at the V&A to bring couture to the common/everyday fashion lover, featuring some of the greatest modern designers du jour. The last show featured Giles Deacon.

This show will likely give us a look through Erdem’s past, present and future. Here are some looks from his Fall 2009 collection…

Erdem Moralioglu printed babydoll dress for FW09

Erdem is no stranger to London – he studied at the Royal College of Art, graduating in 2003. He worked for Diane von Furstenberg for a New York minute, before returning to the birthplace of Mods and Punk Rock, to launch his own line in 2005.

He is obviously inspired by artists from Monet to Degas to Kandinsky. The fusion of florals and blurred beauty is deliberate and intricate, but the results are simple.

These dresses are easy to put on, easy to wear and easy to carry.
